Our High Power season will kick off with the CMP Games Match on Saturday, May 14th.
This match is sometimes called the Garand Match or the GSM Match, is a 30 round for record (and up to 5 sighters) fired from 200 yards. It consists of up to 5 sighting shots fired from any position, then 10 slow fire Prone shots for record, 10 shots Rapid Prone and 10 shots Offhand.
There are categories for just about any rifle you care to bring to the match; M1 Garand (Service and Match), 1903 Springfields, 1917 Enfields, Foreign Military, M1 Carbine, Modern Military, Match rifles and Sporters. This is a re-entry match – you can bring several rifles and shoot in different categories if you wish.
Registration and setup will open about 6:30 AM and will close at 7:30AM. The safety briefing for Relays 1 and 2 will be at the 200-yard line at 7:45 and the first shot will go down range promptly at 8:00 AM.
The Match fee is $20 for FWRR members and members of affiliated Clubs and $25 for others. For re-entry matches, a reduction of $5 per match will apply for each additional match.
We have to keep the lawyers happy. This is a CMP Match; shooters will be required to execute a 2022 CMP Release of Liability Form. Junior Shooters will need to have a parent execute a release for them.
Pre-registration is strongly recommended. I will try to give shooters the relay and firing point they request, but earlier reservations have a better chance of getting their choices. When making reservations, let me know what rifle (or rifles) you plan to shoot – it makes organizing relays a bit easier.
Registration requests, questions or comments should be sent to FWRRHPDirector@aol.com.
